Toyota is recalling 3.2 million vehicles worldwide with more than half of which are in the U.S., to fix faulty fuel pumps.

The recall involves certain Lexus- and Toyota-brand cars and trucks for the 2013-2019 model years. This includes about 1.8 million vehicles sold in the U.S. and another 158,262 in Canada.

The action was necessitated by potentially defective fuel pumps that may stop operating and cause engine stalls that increase the risk of a crash, the company said.

The carmaker issued a separate recall in January for about 2.9 million vehicles with electronic-control units that could affect the deployment of air bags in certain sedan models.
